Tattoo After Care
After 1 hour, remove the wrap and wash the tattoo with foam from Dove soap. Gently pat dry with a clean cotton cloth after, to remove any moisture.
Apply a thin layer of Fucidin cream 4-5 times a day, every day. Clean your hands before applying.
Before a shower apply a thick layer of Vaseline Petroleum Gel or cover it with cling wrap.
After a shower, gently pat and remove the Vaseline with a clean cotton cloth. Do not rub harshly over the tattoo.
Clean the tattoo afterward with foam from Dove soap and pat dry with a clean cotton cloth.
Follow this procedure for 10-15 days, until all the scabs come off. Do not peel the scabs forcefully and let the scabs fall off naturally.
Once all the scabs are off, stop using Fucidin cream and switch to coconut oil.
Make sure you buy Fucidin CREAM, not the ointment. There may be some ink smudging/bleeding over your skin during the initial couple of days – that is completely normal. You just need to gently clean your tattoo.
Avoid exposure to dust – it could lead to an infection.
Avoid exposure to sunlight.
Avoid gymming, swimming, or any activity that causes excessive sweating.
Dermalize Pro is an all-in-one aftercare solution meant to protect your tattoo, especially in the initial stages of healing. It is waterproof and prevents external contaminants from entering the wound.
Once the artist has helped you with the application of Dermalize Pro over your tattoo, follow the below instructions to take the best care of it:
Leave it on for a minimum of 5 days.
You can still shower and the film can get wet, but avoid prolonged submersion. The self-adhesive fil can take only so much.
Avoid hot water over it.
At some point, the edges will start to peel back – just trim those edges with some scissors. Your main aim is to ensure that the wrap stays over the entirety of your tattoo. Though, if it peels back enough to uncover any part of your tattoo, take it off completely and wash it gently.
Once the wrap is off, make sure to keep your tattoo lightly moisturized with some coconut/baby oil, when it feels dry or tight.
NOTE:- In hot weather or depending on what you consume and how your body reacts to it, people are likely to get a heat rash under it, which can be mistaken as an infection. Please contact us immediately so we can take you through what you need to in case this happens.
